The experience is fun, the chefs are show men but the food is a little less exciting. Very starchy and meats are tough, soup is nothing more than oily water and the service was terrible.

We went for the first time, service sucks, food was over priced and no flavor, the sushi was disgusting. This place is an absolute disgrace to other good Japanese restaurants.
